1996 Body Kit Conversion

As you can probably see from the background in our shop pics that we are Corvette guys. This is the first one we bought as a father/son project when my son was 15. It had been a project for the guy we bought it from. He had done the motor work and had purchased many of the expensive aftermarket parts and mods for the car but did not have it put together. He and his wife had a new baby and so he was out of money and time to finish it. I’ll try to include a pic or 2 from when we bought the car.

So my son and I spent several months putting the car together and getting it in the shape you see today. My son is now 19 and finishing his 2nd year at a community college and will be moving to a University next year so we are selling the C4 to free up some money and room in the shop to finish our latest project before he moves, which is a 68 C10. (You can probably see it in the background too)

Mechanically, the car could be a daily driver with no problem. But you’re not going to make it a daily driver unless you live in mild climate somewhere since it doesn’t have heat or A/C. All the A/C and heater parts have been removed from under the hood to clean up the engine bay. The MSD ignition box is now mounted on the firewall where the heater core & blower box was mounted. The factory HVAC head unit is still mounted in the cabin.

We drove the car on weekends as a way for my wife and I to relax. She loves taking the top off (the car's top, not hers ;-) and spending an evening cruising on date nights.

Make sure you can license the car in your state. Classic cars in Arkansas are exempt from emissions so it’s not a problem here, just make sure you know the details about your specific state when it comes to getting license. We removed smog pump, all the plumbing that went along with it, removed the cats, removed the mufflers. It has dual, twin tip exhaust with one having a baffle and one not. It sounds amazing all the way through the rpm range. No popping like I occasionally hear with some C4s.
